Deputy Speaker Hemin Hawrami's condolences on passing of Dr. Firsat Sofi, Governor of Erbil

I was very saddened by the passing of my dear brother and friend Dr. Firsat Sofi, a former MP of the fourth term of the Kurdistan Parliament and head of the committee that reviewed Parliament’s internal rules of procedure, and the current Governor of Erbil.

He was a loyal and active parliamentarian and an accomplished jurist, who had a prominent role in the Kurdistan Parliament. After becoming Governor of Erbil he worked unceasingly on reforms. Unfortunately, his untimely death cut short his significant service to Erbil.

On this sad occasion, I extend my condolences to his family, relatives, friends and colleagues. May he rest in peace.

Hemin Hawrami

Deputy Speaker of Kurdistan Parliament
